Professor (Dr) Rajneesh Kumar Jauhari passed away on 05 Mar 2012 at Kanpur. He was born at Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh on 26 July 1963. Son of late Shri and Smt Chandra Mohan Jauhari, he was the youngest of four siblings.

 Prof Jauhari obtained his M Sc in Physics from Lucknow University in the year 1985 securing second position in the University. Subsequently, he obtained Dip RP from the University of Mumbai in the year 1987 and then joined JK Cancer Institute, GVSM Medical College, Kanpur as Assistant Professor of Medical Physics in the year 1989 before briefly working in an Industry.

Being a true intellectual and academic par excellence, Prof Jauhari continued his pursuit of academics. He joined the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur for M Tech in the field of Nuclear Engineering and Technology and was awarded the degree in the year 1995. His   association with IIT, Kanpur continued further as he worked towards his PhD in the field of fractal characterisation of medical CT images; the degree was awarded to him in the year 2007. He published his research in International Journals of repute such as Medical Physics. Dr Jauhari was promoted as Professor of Medical Physics at JK Cancer Institute in the year 2008. He visited many countries for presenting papers in prestigious conferences and exchange of experience   in the field of  medical physics. Interestingly, his sharp intellect did not miss the social and “para-academic” issues during these foreign visits which he liked to discuss back home with his friends.  Prof Jauhari attended World Congress on Medical Physics at Seoul in 2006. He visited Beijing,  ICTP, Trieste, Italy in the year 2007, and Kingston, Canada in 2011. One of his last major professional assignments at JK Cancer Institute was commissioning of a linear accelerator with IMRT facility under real challenging circumstances.

Prof Jauhari was a person with an extreme sense of propriety, integrity, honesty, and self-respect. He impressed anybody who came in contact with him with his intellect and camaraderie.  His advice and suggestions on organisational and administrative matters were much sought after by his superiors at his institute and in the Government of Uttar Pradesh. He was in the panel of technical advisers of the Govt of UP for procurement of radiotherapy equipment.  He was also an expert with the Public Service Commission, UP in the field of medical physics. Known as “Nawab” among his close friends, he was large hearted, chivalrous, and always finding reasons to celebrate life.

Prof Jauhari leaves behind his wife Mrs Seema  Jauhari and two little kids Anurag and Ananya  aged 11 years and 8 years respectively to whom he loved so much.  He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and colleagues. He was a medical physicist who made you feel proud to be in the same profession. To his friends, the “Nawab” will remain etched in the memories for ever. May God provide strength to his family and friends to bear this irreparable loss.
